|(1) Islaamic History||Hadhrat Umar bin Abdul Azeez (RA)|
|Hadhrat Umar bin Abdul Azeez (RA) was born in the year 61 A.H. His mother, Hadhrat Ummu Aasim, was the daughter-in-law of Hadhrat Umar (RA). The incident leading to her marriage was that Hadhrat Umar (RA) once issued a decree during his Khilaafah that no milk seller was to mix water with their milk. Hadhrat Umar (RA) happened to be patrolling Madinah one night when he overheard a lady telling her daughter, “It is almost morning. Let us add water to the milk.” “But, Mother,” the daughter, responded, “The Ameerul Mu’mineen has forbidden us from mixing water with the milk.” “Dear daughter,” the mother replied, “The Ameerul Mu’mineen is not here. How will he know?” However, the daughter’s reply was, “Although the Ameerul Mu’mineen will not know, Allaah is still watching.” Keeping the house in mind, Hadhrat Umar (RA) returned home and said to his son Aasim, “Marry this girl, for I have hope that such a person will be born who will rule over all of Arabia.” Hadhrat Aasim then married the girl and, as Hadhrat Umar (RA) had predicted, it was Hadhrat Umar bin Abdul Azeez (RA) who was born from this union. He ruled according to the ways of the Khulafaa Raashideen and was even known as Umar the Second.|
|(2) Rasulullaah (SAW)’s Miracle||Speeding up a weary camel|
|Hadhrat Jaabir (RA) reports that during one of his journeys with Rasulullaah (SAW), his camel grew so weary that it was barely able to walk. Rasulullaah (SAW) then pulled the camel along and made a Du’aa. It was a result of this Du’aa that the camel suddenly became the fastest of all the camels. [Bukhaari 2309]|
|(3) A Fardh||Performing the Qadhaa Salaah|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “When any of you forgets to perform Salaah or sleeps though the time of Salaah, then (as expiation) he should perform the Salaah as soon as he remembers.”
[Tirmidhi 177, from Hadhrat Abu Qataadah(RA)]
When a person misses the Fardh Salaah for a valid reason or sleeps though the time, it will be Fardh (obligatory) for him to perform the Qadhaa Salaah.
|(4) A Sunnah||The Du’aa when drinking Zamzam|
|Whenever Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Abbaas (RA) drank Zamzam, he recited the following Du’aa:
اَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ عِلْمًا نَّافِعاً وَّرِزْقًا وَّاسِعًا وَّشِفَاءً مِّنْ كُلِّ دَآءٍ
TRANSLATION: O Allaah! I ask you for beneficial knowledge, abundant sustenance, and cure from all illnesses.
[Mustadrak of Haakim 1739]
|(5) An Important Act and its Virtue||The virtue of the knowledge of Deen|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “If a person passes away whole acquiring the knowledge of Deen in order to preserve the Deen, there shall be only a single rank separating them from the Ambiyaa i in Jannah.”
[Daarmi 362, from Hadhrat Hasan (RA)]
|(6) A Sin||Devouring the wealth of orphans|
|Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “Give the orphans (in your care) their wealth (when they reach the age of maturity and understanding) and do not exchange the bad for the good (do not take what is valuable from their wealth and replace it with something inferior). Do not devour their wealth (by including it) with your own. It is indeed a serious sin to do so”.
[Surah Nisaa, verse 2]
|(7) This World||The loss of these who seek this world|
|Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “Whoever desires the harvest (rewards) of the Aakhirah, We shall increase its harvest for him. (On the contrary,) We shall grant (only) a part of this world’s harvest (luxuries) to the one who desires it (without him receiving all he desires); and he will have no share (of good) in the Aakhirah (because he has no Imaan)”.
[Surah Shura, verse 20]
|(8) The Aakhirah||Even the greatest of good deeds will seem too little on the Day of Qiyaamah|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “If a person remains constantly in the Masjid from the day he is born until he dies, he will regard even this to be too little on the Day of Qiyaamah.”
[Ahmad 17198, from Hadhrat Muhammad bin Abi Umayrah (RA)]
|(9) Cures from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (SAW)||Averting disease|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) has prohibited sitting in a place where part of the body is exposed to sunlight and part of it is not.
[Ibn Maajah 3722, from Hadhrat Buraydah (RA)]
|(10) Advice from
|Rasulullaah (SAW) once said to Hadhrat Abu Dharr (RA), “Fear Allaah wherever you are, do good after committing evil, it will compensate for the evil and always display the best of character towards others.”
